I am what I am

/
From childhood we do what we have to do to fit in. We know this from countless research studies as well as many hours spent with coaches, therapists and counsellors. More often than not, the song we end up singing in life is ‘I am what I’m not’. When life circumstances push us into a period of transition we very often bump up against our intrinsic need to remain acceptable and likeable to our tribe.

Cut off

/
Where passionate heart was filled with flames Lie now the dying embers Where once proud heart, knew all Your names All it knows, just now is emptiness.

How do you use your freedom?

/

Growing old abroad

/
Intercultural couples might never have thought about whose 'home' will be the one where they rest their bones. Couples who share one culture, as well as individuals may face the prospect of reverse culture shock. And some of us may even find we lose our acquired languages.

Passing over

/
Weep not at the cross for in Joy you come. To see the passing, to see Me passing, into the new.

River Erotica

While cheeky geese just squawk and cry, the gentle swans sail idly by. With grace and power in their wings, these mighty warriors, these water kings.

The courage to fly again

/
I know that I can fly again My fear has made me stronger than My courage ever could.

A lazy day

/
Lazy lazy, my brain is hazy My energy low, and I'm moving too slow It’s just one of those days, where not much is done. Just messing about, just dozy, not glum.
